DIRECTIONS

  • Make sauce ahead of time (up to 1 day ahead) to allow flavors to blend and cool the heat of the spice.
  • Peel shrimp and put them in a bowl with 1 tsp salt and mix well. Let sit for 10-15 minutes.
  • Preheat deep fryer or oil in pan to 350 degrees.
  • Pour buttermilk over shrimp and mix thouroughly.
  • Drain shrimp in colander.
  • Put shrimp on a cookie sheet or something with sides so excess buttermilk doesn't drain all over the place.
  • Mix cornstarch and panko bread crumbs.
  • Sprinkle half of the panko/cornstarch mixture over the shrimp.
  • Flip shrimp over and sprinkle remaining mixture over shrimp.
  • ***Make sure they're lightly breaded - that's the key.***.
  • Fry shrimp until golden brown. The panko will get darker than the rest.
  • After frying and draining, place shrimp on lettuce leaves.
  • Drizzle sauce over the shrimp (as little or as much as you want).
  • Sprinkle with scallions.
  • Serve & enjoy.
